Thrilled to be able to show more of my paintings at several locations in Maryland. Check out 49 West in Annapolis and the Columbia Art Center to see the exhibits. Some of the paintings will be available on my website after the exhibits close.
My latest series of paintings, 'Natural Impulse', explores people active in the outdoors. Love of the natural world makes one more likely to care about it's future. I see this series as an extension of my previous two series and my concern about climate change.
At first I did not see the connection in my three series of paintings as they appear to be quite dissimilar. I realized that they are two sides of the same issue. The ‘Challenges’ series represents the negative forces especially climate change. They are primarily abstract images with some figurative elements. There is an element of hope in this series; we are managing to hang on although by a fraying thread.
I view the National Parks as our nation’s treasure. The establishment of these parks is a physical example of what we can do to connect to each other and to our nation. In the midst of climate change, our ability to both protect and use natural resources is necessary for our survival. I have added to my 'National Parks' series with a new painting of Cuyahoga Valley National Park along with the views of Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon and several places in Alaska.
I paint in watercolor and acrylic on paper and wood panels. The space between representational and abstract images is most compelling to me. Explore the collections to see the combination of nature and creativity in my original paintings.
